Weekend Mixtapes #34

French ClekClekBoom put out their 36th Boomcast, featuring a guestmix from Hyperdub‘s very own Kode9 and Scratcha DVA.

Mixmag’s latest mix of the week comes from Detroit’s Rick Wade, expect an hour full of house music.

My personal favourite in this week’s selection is Linkwood‘s contribution of “random b-sides and weirdnesss” to the podcast series by their label Firecracker.

And lastly, Hyponik remind us of a producer’s name that might have slipped off your radar: Nubian Mindz

Weekend Mixtapes

Following that MoMA podcast from some years back, Prefuse 73 returns to the museums with a new mixtape recorded at the American Museum of Natural History last Friday.

We gave you an Alexander Nut mix earlier this week, now here’s another one put together for the guys at Hyponik.

Waiting for a recording of Jneiro Jarel’s set at Boiler Room isn’t so bad when you get DOOM‘s set instead. That’s right, the masked rapper played there for 60 minutes last week.

This is not the first time we share one of Sotu The Traveller‘s mixes, and being huge fans we’d like to point you to his new one for fashion/design blog Ajanaku.

With his new album Lineage out on Ghostly since January, Shigeto put together a mixtape containing nothing but music from the label.

Two more uptempo mixes to finish this off. Greymatter did a mix for the Get Some podcast and Scuba played a two-hour set for Beatport.

Weekend Mixtapes

Good Morning from Berlin! Morning has long been over, but I’m still in bed to compile this list of weekend mixtapes.

In anticipation of the forthcoming second Minimal Wave compilation, Veronica Vasicka has completed her another podcast for Stones Throw. And while we’re at it, you can get the advance releases of Minimal Wave Tapes Vol. 2 on the newly introduced subscription service on drip.fm.

Seriously, when does a man like FaltyDL get some sleep. Restlessly putting out music and there isn’t exactly a shortage of DJ mixes. His latest is available for download and stream at Concepto Radio.

Surefire Agency spent the week uploading old and new mixtapes froms the artists it represents. Among them is this Jukebox Mix by Addison Groove.

The all new Solid Steel show confused me for a second. Labeled as a Four Tet mix, it’s actually Bristolian Pinch doing a guestmix on the latest show.

Mixmag has a feature on Will Saul, founder of Aus Music. Interview and a short mix can be found on their website.

And lastly, LDLDN has tipped me off with this archive of old jungle mixtapes. Should keep you busy for a while!

Weekly Bits 41/2011

As John Cale is about to release a new album on Domino, he talked to The Quietus about Stockhausen, Velvet Underground, Warhol and the present day.

In all quietness, I’ve added the second part of Erykah Badu‘s Out My Mind Movement video to the original post. Thought I’d let you know!

The King Midas Sound mix for FACT Magazine is one of those that stayed on my iPod since it came out two years ago. Glad they are back with a new one for Dummy Mag.

More recommended mixtapes are Mixmag’s Mix of the Week by Brighton based Greymatter, and Throwing Snow‘s exclusive mix for Dazed Digital.

I’ve kept my favourite finding to end this post: Mikuś Musik uploaded some truly classic radioshows, all of them aired around the year 2000. These include 4hero sitting in for Gilles Peterson, Phil Asher talking to Dominic Jacobson about the first Modaji LP (!), and shows from IG Culture, Patrick Forge and Kirk Degiorgio. You need each and every one of these shows!
